Energy Storage Research Goes into Cryogenics

A team of engineers at the University of Hull has won £6m of funding to explore the use of cryogenics in energy storage. Dr. Wang Meihong, from the university’s School of Engineering, will be leading the project, which includes the creation of a Centre for Cryogenic Energy Storage at the University of Birmingham. He said that advancing energy storage innovations are crucial to adequately respond to variable user demand. Speaking as the Vice- Chancellor for Research and Enterprise, Professor John Hay was confident that the research conducted will “help address one of renewable energy’s greatest challenges.”

Crygenics energy storage works by using surplus energy to produce liquid air. To draw power from storage, the liquid air is vaporise into gas and used to run a turbine.
